Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Armstrong Massage Rehab
Armstrong Massage Rehab doesn't offer typical day-spa massages. Instead, Justin Armstrong specializes in using massage therapy to complement muscular-rehabilitation efforts and help his clients overcome the chronic aches and pains caused by injury. Justin's massages do provide a sense of calm and relaxation as they alleviate tension throughout the body. However, the ultimate goal is to facilitate holistic health and well-being without resorting to medications. To ensure that he can address a wide range of potential concerns, Justin can employ specialized massage modalities depending on his clients' needs. Traditional Swedish and deep-tissue techniques target knots and areas of withheld tension, myofascial release addresses the trauma caused by acute injuries, and trigge- point therapy restores healthy muscular function while reducing inflammation in the surrounding connective tissues. Utilizing these modalities, along with several others, allows Justin to help clients manage the pains caused by anything from sciatica to car accidents.
